More Brass - Kai Winding

Walk On The Wild Side
More Brass
Kai Winding
Produced By Creed Taylor
Verve V/V6-8657

From the back cover: Ranked by leading jazz authority Leonard Feather as "one of the major trombone products of bop, a pace setter in 1945 and still a major (jazz) influence," trombonist Kai Winding has spent the past three years doubling in brass as leader of his own instrumental combo and musical director of Playboy's Manhattan hutch (...since signing on as Playboy's Top Trombone in 1962).

This recording featuring outstanding engineering. The music is smooth and cool light pop or big band swing jazz instrumentals to include several male choral vocal tunes. The featured sample is the more energetic/space age tune found on the LP.
